The judicial application of law by Jerzy Wróblewski( Book )

10 editions published between 1982 and 1992 in English and held by 246 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"'The judicial application of law' gives a thorough account of all that is involved in the idea of 'applying' law as this is carried out by judges. Thus it analytically explores a vital idea for our understanding of legality as a value to which systems of government aspire. This is achieved by the rigorous construction and examination of models of the various steps involved in judicial decision making, including elements both of interpretation and fact finding, and by the exploration of various possible ideologies of the application of law. The book takes, as its main material for analysis, statute-based legal systems in the form these took within socialist legal systems prior to the recent revolutions, being based principally on the law of Poland up to 1989."
Constructing legal systems : "European Union" in legal theory by Neil MacCormick( Book )

17 editions published between 1995 and 1997 in English and Undetermined and held by 213 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Legal theory has been much occupied with understanding legal systems and analysing the concept of legal system. This has usually been done on the tacit or explicit assumption that legal systems and states are co-terminous. But since the Rome Treaty there has grown up in Europe a `new legal order', neither national law nor international law, and under its sway older conceptions of state sovereignty have been rendered obsolete. At the same time, it has been doubted whether the `European Union' that has grown out of the original `European Communities' has a satisfactory constitution or any constitution at all. What kind of legal and political entity is this `Union' and how does it relate juridically and politically to its member states? Further, the activity of construing or constructing `legal system' and legal knowledge becomes visibly problematic in this context. These essays wrestle with the above problems
Law and legal interpretation by Fernando Atria Lemaître( Book )

14 editions published between 2003 and 2018 in English and held by 212 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Leading recent essays on interpretation are assembled in this volume, which offsets them against a small number of 'classical' works from earlier periods. It has long been recognised that textual sources (constitutions, statutes, precedents, commentaries) are central to 'developed' systems of law and that interpretation of such texts is one highly important element in adjudication, legal practice and legal scholarship. More recently, scholars have contended that the totality of legal activity is 'interpretive' in a wider sense and debates about objectivity have raged. The reasons for this development are here critically scrutinized
Controversies about law's ontology( Book )

15 editions published between 1989 and 1991 in English and held by 211 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Enlightenment, rights, and revolution : essays in legal and social philosophy by Congrès mondial de philosophie du droit et de philosophie sociale( Book )

13 editions published between 1989 and 1990 in English and Undetermined and held by 180 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The present volume deals with a number of fundamental issues in philosophy of law and social philosophy. The reviews and perspectives it represents are thoroughly international in scope and range, with the participation of leading thinkers from six continents. Within the overall theme of 'Enlightenment, Rights and Revolution', each of the sub-themes has been so well explored by its authors that the whole does amount to more than the sum of its parts. As editors, we might have been temped to claim credit for this beyond our due; in truth, however, the authors of the essays which make up the book did it all with a minimum of editorial intervention, and in a very short time. We are profoundly grateful to them all." -- Preface
